Happiness Always

Whoa, baby!! Today's color challenge over on SCS took me waaaayyyyy out of my comfort zone (CC260)!!! NEVER woulda put these colors together in, like, a GAZILLION years!! Totally LIKE-Y!! Don'tcha love it when that happens??

I pulled out my Folk Flowers stencil again, too. I am TOTALLY loving that as well!! Too-too cool, in my opinion!!

How's that for a short blog post??? Kinda like a "fly-by" ... I've been busy helping my mom move into a new condo right by my house, so I have been BUSY!! Hope to get back to some sort of regular schedule SOON (but I'm not holding my breath!)!!

I have been checking out those stencils and resisted buying them so far but you may have sealed the deal for me with this card. It is beautiful! I felt the same as you when I saw the color challenge combo (huh?) but you did a fab job using the colors together.

Your card is wonderful, Wendy. Just wanted to let you know that the one you've shared during the last swap was a real crowd-pleaser around here. My Mom was looking at my cards and she picked this one out of the bunch as one of her faves.
Just thought I'd share! :)
